Introduction
Although there are no external indicators or switches (due to the nature of the
weatherproof housing), there is an access panel that can be removed, allowing use of
internal switches and indicators (refer to Chapter 4 for more information).
Note: The internal indicators and switches are only used for factory testing and
troubleshooting.
The system, during setup and while running, is intended to be controlled remotely.
Refer to Figure 1-2 for an interconnection block diagram of the switch.

2.3 Switch Installation
At the customer’s discretion, the switch can be installed anywhere on or near the
antenna. The supplied hardware allows the installer a wide range of installation
alternatives, including:
•
Vertical pole (e.g., mast) (either square or round). This is the most typical
installation.
•
Within the hub of a large antenna.
•
Spar (i.e., rectangular bar) on the antenna structure.
The switch is designed to be mounted with the interface connections facing the ground.
Note: For custom installations, refer to Figure 2-1 for dimensions of the RSU-503.

Installation
RSU-503 Redundancy Switch Unit
To install the switch to a round vertical pole:
1. Set the switch on its side, with the mounting holes facing up.
2. Install the 14” unistrut as follows:
a. Position a 14” long
unistrut (with the open
side facing up) over
the mounting holes on
the unit.
b. Using three 1/4-20 x
5/8” bolts, 1/4” split
lockwashers, and 1/4”
flat washers, attach the
unistrut to the switch.
c. Tighten the bolts
firmly.
3. Install the pipe blocks as follows:
a. Install two spring nuts in the 14” long unistrut which is mounted on the unit,
and in a second 14” long unistrut.
Be sure to center the spring nuts in the unistruts wide enough apart so that
when the pipe blocks are installed, they will clear the pole when the unit is
lifted into place for installation.
b. Install each spring nut as follows:
(1) Place the spring
nut in the unistrut
channel, spring
side down, with
its wide side
parallel with the
unistrut channel.

the nut 90°
(perpendicular to
the unistrut).
(3) Release pressure on the spring nut.
(4) Repeat Steps 3.b.(1) through 3.b.(3) for each spring nut.
c. Using four 5/16-18 x
1” bolts, 5/16” split
lockwashers, and
5/16” flat washers,
loosely secure the pipe
blocks to the spring
nuts in each 14”
unistrut.
Ensure the pipe blocks
are installed with the
long angle facing
inward, toward the
pipe, as illustrated.
DO NOT tighten the
pipe block bolts until
after mounting the
switch on the vertical
pole (see Step 5.e.).
4. Install the threaded rods as follows:
a. Install two spring nuts in the 14” long unistruts mounted on the unit.
Note: Ensure the spring nuts are positioned over the outer holes in the long
unistruts.

1. Be sure to position the flanges of the fitting plates in the grooves of
the unistruts.
2. Before tightening the nuts on the threaded rods, ensure that the end
of each rod is screwed in until it is flush with the backside of the
unistrut. This ensures the rods are threaded completely through the
spring nuts.
Tighten each nut firmly.

Thread a 5/16-18 nut
about 2” onto the end
of each threaded rod.
g. Slip a 5/16” split
lockwasher, 5/16” flat
washer and flat fitting
plate (in that order)
onto each threaded
rod.
5. Mount the unit as follows:
a. Lift the unit into position on the vertical pole.
b
Slip the 14” unistrut
over the threaded rods
(upper and lower).
Note: Install the 14”
unistrut with its open
face toward the pole.
c. Install a 5/16” flat
washer, 5/16” split

THEORY OF OPERATION
This chapter provides the basic theory for the following:
•
•
•
•
Switch power
Waveguide and coax switch drivers
LNA
M&C operational control
3.1 Power
In a redundant system, the switch is powered from either of the two RFT terminals via
the M&C interconnect cable. External DC power (approximately 10.8V) enters the M&C
on pins 1 and 2 of connector J17 (25-pin D), and is “ORed” through diodes CR1 and
CR2.
The switch is monitored by the analog-to-digital (A/D) converter U16, and is made
available as a maintenance status through the serial terminal.
A 3-terminal regulator, U1, converts and regulates the +5V to all the logic, including the
microcontroller U18.
PS1 converts the 10V input voltage to 30V, where it is stored by capacitors C6 through
C10 to supply the 500 millisecond pulses to the transfer switches.
Rev. 8
3–1
Theory of Operation
RSU-503 Redundancy Switch Unit
3.2 Waveguide and Coax Switch Drivers
The microcontroller creates the 500 millisecond pulses to control the positions of all four
transfer switches. Photovoltaic opto-isolated switches U8, U9, U10, and U11 transform
the +5V logic into 30V pulses to drive the latching coils of the switches.
Each microwave transfer switch contributes 0.3 dB of insertion loss, with a minimum of
70 dB of isolation.
3.3 LNA
The LNAs are powered directly from their respective RFTs through the RF coax cable.
The RFT performs a current sense on its LNA, and informs the switch by declaring a
downlink fault, if one is detected.
3.4 M&C Operational Control
3.4.1 Communications Link
The terminal functions can be remotely controlled and monitored via an RS-485 or
RS-232 communications link.
•
The RS-485 interface makes it possible to operate 255 terminals on a common
communications link.
•
The RS-232 interface is used to communicate with a single terminal.
The M&C module must be hardware configured on the M&C board to one of the two
interfaces. Refer to the following table for jumper placement at JP3:

RSU-503 Redundancy Switch Unit
Theory of Operation
Although the switch M&C is considered to be the slave unit on the MTI RS-232 bus, it
becomes the master when communicating to each of the two RFTs.
When not servicing MTI requests, the M&C monitors indicators, faults, and voltages.
When applicable, it generates switch-over pulses.
When polled from the MTI, the switch M&C will perform the following functions:
1. Return a response acknowledging receipt of the command.
2. Decode the address in the message, compare it to the stored addresses, and route
it to its intended destination.
3. Return a block of status information when requested.
3.4.2 Switch Indicators
Address 9000 reads in the eight indicator bits representing the four uplink and four
downlink indicator positions. The following tables show how the four bits are decoded to
indicate whether the unit A or B is currently online.

Cable not connected from RFT A.
RFT A not powered up.
Cable not connected from RFT B.
RFT B not powered up.
DC/DC module PS1 bad on M&C board.
Short on output of module PS1.
RFT A has a fault in either the UL or DL. Cable from
RFT A disconnected, or RFT A turned off.
RFT B has a fault in either the UL or DL. Cable from
RFT B disconnected, or RFT B turned off.
IF and RF transfer switches (input/output) are not in
sync. Use remote terminal, or M&C push-buttons to
alternate between A and B online. This will synchronize
the pair.
Request Fault Status from remote terminal to ascertain
the specific fault from fault list.

A.1 Description
Refer to Figure A-2 for an interconnection block diagram of the RSU-503L in a typical
earth station application.
Using WR229 (C-band) or WR75 (Ku-band) waveguide, the RSU-503L routes the RF
outputs from both RFTs directly to a waveguide switch on the antenna plate.
In addition to the RSU-503 functions, the RSU-503L provides command pulses for the
external uplink waveguide switch (28V).

Notes:
1. Unless indicated otherwise, any references in this appendix to “the switch” apply
to both the RSU-503 and RSU-503L.
2. Before operating the system, ensure the installation is complete and the cable
connectors are tight, especially the connections from the waveguide switch
indicators. If not, no harm will come to the unit, but the online indicators might
read erroneously if the waveguide switch is not set to the same online position as
the coax switches in the switch.
Ambiguity between any of the RF switches can be corrected by commanding a
switchover from A to B, or B to A. This will then latch all switches on the same channel.
This natural ambiguity only occurs during installation, and would only reoccur if a
switch becomes faulty.
Note: The firmware referenced in this manual may be an earlier version of the actual
firmware supplied with the unit.

B–1
Remote Control Operation
RSU-503 Redundancy Switch Unit
B.1 General
Remote controls and status information are transferred via an RS-485 (optional RS-232)
serial communications link.
Commands and data are transferred on the remote control communications link as
US ASCII-encoded character strings.
The remote communications link is operated in a half-duplex mode.
Communications on the remote link are initiated by a remote controller or terminal. The
switch never transmits data on the link unless it is commanded to do so.
Serial communications with either RFT through the switch remains the same as
communicating directly with the unit. Each individual RFT is assigned its own unique
address, and will respond when that address is polled. To the RFT, the interconnection is
transparent—it will not know whether the command came through the switch or directly
from the terminal.
The switch receives all commands from the interface, decodes the contained address,
compares it to its stored addresses, and routes the message to the intended destination.
When an RFT communication parameter (address, baud rate, and parity) is changed, the
switch will also store that information in its EEPROM.
Note: All three units must have unique addresses.
B.2 Message Structure
The ASCII character format used requires 11 bits/character:
•
•
•
1 start bit
7 information bits plus 1 parity bit
2 stop bits
•
•
•
1 start bit
8 information bits with no parity bit
2 stop bits
or:
Messages on the remote link fall into the categories of commands and responses.
Commands are messages which are transmitted to the switch, while responses are messages
returned by the switch in response to a command.
B–2
Rev. 8
RSU-503 Redundancy Switch Unit
Remote Control Operation
The general message structure is as follows:
•
•
•
•
Start Character
Device Address
Command/Response
End of Message Character
B.2.1 Start Character
A single character precedes all messages transmitted on the remote link. This character
flags the start of a message. This character is:
•
•
“<” for commands
“>” for responses
B.2.2 Device Address
The device address is the address of the switch which is designated to receive a transmitted
command, or which is responding to a command.
Valid device addresses are 1 to 3 characters long, and in the range of 1 to 255. Address 0 is
reserved as a global address which simultaneously addresses all devices on a given
communications link. Devices do not acknowledge global commands.
Each switch and RFT connected to a common remote communications link, must be
assigned its own unique address. Addresses are software selectable at the unit, and must be
in the range of 1 to 255.
Note: Global address “*” is reserved for KP-10 (the external keypad) commands. Refer
to the KP-10 External Keypad Installation and Operation Manual.
Rev. 8
B–3
Remote Control Operation
RSU-503 Redundancy Switch Unit
B.2.3 Command/Response
The command/response portion of the message contains a variable-length character
sequence which conveys command and response data.
If the switch receives a message addressed to it which does not match the established
protocol or cannot be implemented, a negative acknowledgment message is sent in
response. This message is:
•
>add/?ER1_parity error'cr''lf']
(Error message for received parity errors.)
•
>add/?ER2_invalid parameter'cr''lf']
(Error message for a recognized command which cannot be implemented or has parameters
which are out of range.)
•
>add/?ER3_unrecognizable command'cr''lf']
(Error message for unrecognizable command or bad command syntax.)
•
>add/?ER4_converter in lock mode'cr''lf']
(Controller in Lock mode. Must go to Enable mode first.)
•
>add/?ER5_not supported by hardware'cr''lf']
(Command is valid command, but it is not supported by the current hardware configuration.)
•
>add/?ER6_address in use'cr''lf']
(Address specified in the ASA, ASB, or ASR command is already assigned.)
•
>add/?ER7_RSU-503 in auto mode'cr''lf']
(Switch is in Auto mode. Must go to Manual mode first.)
Note: “add” is used to indicate a valid 1 to 3 character device address in the
range between 1 and 255.
B.2.4 End Character
Each message is ended with a single character which signals the end of the message:
•
•

This command is used to retrieve address, baud rate, and parity
information for the three communication links:
•
•
•
Terminal to switch
Switch to RFT Unit A
Switch to RFT Unit B
The user can specify the polling of either Unit A or Unit B, or both,
but must know the address of the switch.
Upon receipt of this command, the switch will commence a polling
sequence of the specified unit(s) at all possible combinations of
address, baud rate, and parity. The polling is completed when
polled unit responds, or all combinations have been exhausted.
The switch then transmits the polled information back to the user
terminal.
If the switch does not receive a response from the polled unit, it
will respond with the following message in place of the address,
baud rate, and parity information:
<add/POLL_X'cr'
Unable To Communicate'cr''lf']
X = A or B
Note: Approximately 24 minutes are required to poll all
combinations of address, baud rate, and parity per unit (A or B).
The only way to abort this operation once it has been started is to
cycle power.

This command selects the uplink switch configuration, placing the
selected unit online, and the other on standby.
Where:
X = M (Manual) or A (Auto).
YYYY = MAN or AUTO.
This command places the switch uplink in either Manual or Auto
mode. In Auto mode, the switch will activate a switchover upon a
fault of the online unit.
Where: X = A or B.
This command selects the downlink switch configuration, placing
the selected unit online, and the other on standby.
Where:
X = M (Manual) or A (Auto).
YYYY = MAN or AUTO.
This command places the switch downlink in either Manual or Auto
mode.
Where: X = A (both Uplink and Downlink), B (Uplink only),
C (Downlink only), D (both Uplink and Downlink without LNA plate
- mask off DLA_FLT).
This command is used to configure the RSU for either "Uplink and
Downlink", "Uplink Only", or "Downlink Only" operation.
Where: X = A (UL/DL, last state on power-down) (default),
B (UL/DL A/A online), C (UL/DL B/B online), D (UL/DL A/B online),
E (UL/DL B/A online).
Note: Valid for all HWC configurations (see the HWC_ command).
This command is used to configure the switch online initialization
on power-up, and clears any ambiguity faults.
